Low maintenance, drought tolerant palm

The Canary Island Date Palm is the number one palm planted by hotels and resorts because their tropical beauty surprises and outshines other palm varieties. 

This canary palm variety has a singular wide trunk that grows straight upwards with attractive grey bark. The bark has a textured pattern with a series of horizontal diamonds. The pattern resembles a pineapple’s skin, giving this tree its nickname, the ‘Pineapple Palm’. 

At the top of each Canary Palm sits a large crown of long arching fronds that are covered with long leaf blades that fill the landscape with lush, tropical color. The color only intensifies when this palm has large clusters of orange flowers in the spring that turn into bright orange showy fruit in the fall.

This tall growing palm grows large enough to make a bold statement in your landscape. It will attract the eyes of all of your neighbors, and you’ll be able to see its vibrant colors from miles away, inviting you to relax in the tropical paradise it creates.  

If you would like to keep a smaller palm, place your Canary Island Date Palm in a container. These palms love growing in pots, and can even be kept indoors. If you live above growing zone 8, place your palm tree in a pot and bring it indoors once the weather gets cold. 

Canary Island Date Palms are often celebrated as one of most low maintenance palm varieties available. They are heat resistant and drought tolerant so they need little to no attention during hot summer days.

Received the order (3 Palms) and transferred them. Arrived very healthy and vibrant! I live in Florida so we had several days of rain. Developed a rust on the fronds by FGT immediately responded and directed me how to protect my investment. Have since ordered more trees from this Fabulous Company!

Excellent Product
I love my canary palms. They arrived vibrant, green, and healthy. A wild rabbit loved them too, and stood under streams of shades gives by palm fronds. I didn't want him to start knowing on flowers and bulbs I had just planted and had my son run him away into another yard.

Fast growing trees certainly sent quality trees.

Beautiful Canary Island Date Palm and very hardy!
My purchase of this beautiful Canary Island Date Palm from Fast-Growing Trees exceeded my expectations. The palm arrived on the expected date, healthy and ready to plant. It is rated for USDA zones 9-11. I live close to Puget Sound in western Washington state which for me is zone 8a & 8b. The climate here is described as a moderated Mediterranean climate with rainy breezy winters with occasional snow and frost and dry warm summers. In zone 8 and (for the adventurous gardener), I highly recommend this palm If planted in a protected sunny location and definitely given winter protection November thru February. I have seen them successfully grown outside in coastal British Columbia It is a great companion plant along side Windmill Palm, Pindo Palm and Mediterranean fan palm and other broadleaf evergreens.... Kudos to Fast-Growing-Trees.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Canary Island Date Palm

Canary Island Date Palm  Planting Diretions

The Canary Island Date Palm as a large crown of lengthy, arching, feathery fronds that sit at the top of the tree. These palms are the most commonly planted by hotels and resorts due to their beautiful, tropical appearance. This variety, known as “Phoenix Canariensis” performs best in USDA growing zones 4-8 on the patio (or potted) and 9-11 outdoors in full sun (they can tolerate some light shade). Date Palms are slow growers that mature to a height of 30-60 feet tall and 20-30 feet in width so be sure to take into account the tree’s mature height when scouting your planting site.

Location: Choose a location that receives FULL SUN (6+ hours daily) with well draining soil.

Planting Directions (in the ground):
1) Dig your hole 2-3 times the width and slightly shallower than the root ball.
2) Loosen the soil, in and around the hole so the roots can easily break through.
3) Use your fingers to separate the roots of your date palm and gently position downward in the hole. The top of the root flare (where the roots end and the trunk begins) should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
4) Hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill the site, tamping down the soil as you go.
5) When finished, apply water to settle the soil and remove any air pockets.

Planting Directions (potted):
1) Choose a container that is 1-2 times larger than the pot that the plant initially arrived in.
2) Use a quality acidic potting medium such as a palm or citrus mix.
3) Partially fill the container part way, position the palm and fill the remainder leaving a slight space from the rim of the pot.
4) Choose a location on the patio, backyard, or front/side of the house providing it will receive full to partial sun.
5) Water until it begins to flow through the bottom drainage holes, keep the soil slightly moist but not saturated.
6) If bringing indoors during the winter, keep by a sunny window and water as needed. Avoid exposure to both drafts and heat from a window or vent.

Watering (in the ground): Palm trees are drought tolerant once established, but will require frequent watering as they establish. Allowing the soil to dry out will weaken the root system of the palm tree. Only allow the soil to dry 1-2 inches down before watering again. The frequency will depend on the climate and how much rain you receiving.

Watering (potted): Stick you finger into the potting soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is drying out, go ahead and water until you see it escaping the drainage holes and then stop. If there is still moisture present, leave it be until it dries a bit more.

Pruning: Palms do not need much pruning except to remove damaged fronds. Be careful not to pull off any dead or damaged fronds as that can leave a wound behind. Always remove any damaged fronds by pruning them off with a sharp pair of sterilized pruners.

Mulch: To help enrich the soil and reduce growth competition from weeds, apply a heavy mulch around the trunk, using wood chips, cypress bark or lawn clippings. This will also help to reduce water consumption. Avoid letting the mulch touch the trunk as this can promote rot and/or fungus.

Fertilizing: Nutrients are vital for palm trees to thrive. The sandy, well draining soils they prefer have a tendency for nutrients to leach away quickly. You can apply palm fertilizers that contain specific nutrients best suited for palms. The slow release of these nutrients will provide consistent, targeted feeding to help your tree grow strong and healthy. If you prefer, you can use a balanced fertilizer such as an 8-8-8 formula for quicker growth in spring and summer. To avoid yellowing and maintain a healthy shade of green coloring, feed your tree a few spoons full of Epsom salt or a fertilizer that contains nutrients like manganese which will prevent the yellowing and shriveling of the fronds.

Does it grow in Portland, or?
Aref hansen on Aug 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Canary Island Date Palm will grow in Portland Oregon. I have had great success in the Puget Sound area. Spring is the best time to plant palms in the garden. You could order it now, plant it in a pot, keep it outdoors on a deck or porch and move it indoors thru the winter.. Then in the Spring when it comes to planting the CDIP out in your landscape, it will love the extra heat units that Portland Oregon's summers provide. It loves full sun with some partial shade... Plant it in a berm of well draining soil like a potting/cactus mix and keep it well watered...Just make sure to give it winter protection the first of November thru February. It is as easy as tying the fronds together, putting a frost cover over it and covering the entire palm in dry straw, then secure the palm by making a tent around it with a tarp to keep it dry over winter. Uncover it about the 15th. of March or after your last hard frost. The Canary Island Date Palm needs at least three years to become fully established. After that, it just requires minimal protection during winter cold snaps.. Have fun, the Hardy Palm Guru
What is the growth rate per year ?
George M on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My two trees are doing very well and are very healthy but growing about 5 inches per year. I would say they are slow growing but it is worth to have them. They are beautiful despite the fact they are short.
Will they grow in South Carolina?

BEST ANSWER: I can’t give an accurate answer to that, as I live in New Jersey. I have mine in a large pot. I’ve had it for about a year. I brought it inside in October and it survive the winter very nicely in my house. In early May I put it back outside I can’t give an accurate answer to that, as I live in New Jersey. I have mine in a large pot. I’ve had it for about a year. I brought it inside in October and it survive the winter very nicely in my house. In early May I put it back outside.

When is the best time to plant Canary Date Palm?
Tonya L on Jul 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I planted mine in early July and she's doing great! I live right on the Gulf Coast and the palm gets full sun all day. I water about every other day and planted the palm in Miracle Grow soil.
If I plant a palm tree in a yard in philadelphia, pa. will it grow?
Mary N on Jun 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Philadelphia is in Zone 7A and 7B, so you would need to protect it anytime it got below 25 degrees. I grow mine in a pot in zone 7B and bring it into the garage in Jan and Feb when the temps are coldest. There are also ways to protect outdoor palms. There are people on YouTube who grow these in the yard in Canada, but they use winter protection as could you. These palm are of luck
I live in zone 4 bordering closely to zone 3. I would like to plant a palm tree in a container, on deck in summer and winter in house. Which palm tree would you recommend?
Mary M on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All the palms that I purchased were put into containers last Spring, summer ed outdoors here in Montana, brought indoors before frost. They have winter ed well, the fan palm could use more misting. One just started showing signs of spider mites, which it more than likely caught from my orange tree. The palms at slow growers...but then again, I kept pot size small.
